    Default Retro Computing Roundtable live via YouTube, Sat Aug 4 11 AM Pacific, 2 PM Eastern

    Hi there,

    The recording of the Retro Computing Roundtable will be broadcast live from this point forward, via YouTube. The URL is:

    http://www.youtube.com/RCRPodcast

    You can also find our uploaded videos at this URL as well.

    The next scheduled event is Saturday, Aug 4 at 11 AM Pacific, 2 PM Eastern!

    We remain primarily an audio podcast; however, over time we will be adding special video features for those who choose to watch the broadcast in real-time, or after the fact.

    Please tune in, comment, and let us know what you think!

    Thanks,

    - Earl

    That is so cool! I will be on the road at that time so I won't be able to tune in live. I'll watch it when I get a chance.

    The sound quality for those of us who didn't tune into the live stream and got the mp3 version was absolutely terrible- not enough to unsubscribe; it would just be nice for that to be resolved somehow. Carrington, ironically serving as host, sounded the most unclear, being almost unintelligible at times. It's sort of a shame, seeing as how he boasts such superb podcasting equipment. The telephone-sounding sound on previous episodes that were made with Skype never bothered me, but episode 31 was a step backwards. The idea that Youtube is wrecking the sound quality of this podcast kindles my growing hatred of Youtube, and I hope there's a practical way to fix this issue.

    I'm posting this here because I'm sure it bothered others too, but at the end of the day I could care less about sound quality. Live streaming gives a new dimension to the show, if I can manage to catch one when it broadcasts.

    Default Sound Quality of Podcast Stream Poor

    Sorry Guys, this podcast was terrible. Difficult to understand in most parts, and made Skype recordings sound good. As I listen to your podcast (amongst others) while driving to/from work, a 100km round trip (Carrington, would you convert to silly units for Earl and David), I had to flick back over to radio, as trying to understand was too distracting while driving.

    Thanks for the feedback guys, and we're sorry to hear that. For the next show, we'll all be recording ourselves, then those will be combined for the audio podcast. Audio quality should then be at it's best!

    YouTube quality will remain as is of course.

    I think it was a good start, but we're going to try and re-focus ourselves to do the show as usual while recording for the audio podcast. We're going to stay on longer after the show to interact more on YouTube live.

    Thank you our listeners / viewers / fans!

    Best,
